Yesterday, a few social media posts resulted in mass panic among the KISS fandom. Allegedly, rumor spread that the band’s own Eric Singer suffered blood clots after their recent Cleveland show and was rushed to the hospital, according to Loudwire.
However, the band have used their own respective social media platforms to refute the rumors.
Three Sides Of The Coin, a KISS podcast, revealed that the Facebook page that started the rumor is actually fake account. Additionally, according to comments on Singer’s actual Facebook post, the post in question came from a closed group called “KISS End Of The Road Tour.”
“Evidently there are people who think it is cool/funny to have ‘fake’ Facebook accounts and play pretend,” Singer says in a Facebook post. “I am fine and just played Cleveland (hometown) last night… Just to clarify any Hoaxes started today regarding ME.”
Additionally, the band also shared their thoughts about the matter on their Instagram. The band then announce that their End Of the Road tour will go on as normal.

Ok some one please tell me what happened? What was the Hoax with Eric Singer? I’m confused I couldn’t find anything about him having health reports or any sicknesses of any kind? Cause he was playing fine on Saturday night … pic.twitter.com/Asi6XYG3Xc

We are putting the rumors to rest, the account on Facebook that posted that Eric Singer went to the ER is a FAKE account. It is not the official Eric Singer Facebook page. This is what journalism is about, facts and sources.
